12th Wartburg Symposium

on Flavor Chemistry & Biology

Scientific Program

The meeting is designated to provide an integrative approach for modern research in the field. The program will contain about ten plenary lectures, 22 short talks, 12 flash poster presentations, and about 60 posters.

The presentation of the posters will be organized in two guided poster sessions and the best poster will be awarded. Because the space for participants is limited to about 150 persons, the organizers will send invitations to attend the symposium primarily based on the submission of an acceptable abstract.

However, there is also space for people who only want to attend. The following are the main subject areas for which papers will be invited:
